Did you know...the dodgems have been with us for over 80 years? But where did they come from? Who made them? What makes them stop and what makes them go?

With no indicating, no gear change, you can just let yourself go!

Where the law has no jurisdiction, it is one of the few rides that you are in control of and that's what you love.

Would you like to know the untold stories from the fairground?

With details of manufacture from the very men who put them together, here is the story of the Dodgems.

You have all bumped your way around the dodgem track, now this book reveals what was happening behind the laughter. So hold on tight as this book takes you on a trip down memory lane.
